Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently, Apple changed its iPhone OS developer agreement to prohibit the use of programming language other than Objective-C, C, C++, and JavaScript running in WebKit. This has the effect of pretty much pre-emptively killing Adobe's CS5 iPhone developer tools, as well as several other, similar tools. Adobe has now said it will cease development of the iPhone development tools. To make matters really interesting, Apple has actually replied directly to this news.

So Apple finally became a market leader in something and this is how they act? Their ugly behavior makes Google, who has been a market leader for ages, look downright saintly. Maybe if they weren't such d$cks, they'd have a long term chance against Android.

Android and Windows Phone 7 will both put pressure on them. All the companies that have made games with XNA will be able to easily port them to Phone 7.
